BANKS PAY INTEREST ON PUBLIC FUNDS
One Banker Says It Is aa
Open Secret that Payment
Ou Into amp I a a
CINCINNATI, O.. Feb. IM.-Tlie sciicatioiis
of the Any in the investigation by the sen
ate committee of Hamilton county affairs
were the positive refuial of County Treas
urer Hynicka to produce his private ac
count and bank books and the statement
of Banker Hinch that local business would
have been blocked had the county funds
been retained fiotn the treasurer's vauis.
The committee will report to the state sen
ate the refusal of Mr. Hynlcka to produce
his books and It is suggested today that
he would probably be cited before the sen
ate on a chaige ol contempt.
The payment of gratuities to the county
treasurer by the bankers for deposit have
continued for several years, according to
the tentlmony of Cashier George Schott,
who was the first witness today before the
Drake committee of the state senate. The
payments weie made on a baft of from 2
to fl per cent of the deposits. He had been
cashier fur fourteen years, serving under
four different treasurers.
Money deeded la Baalness.
Charles A. Hlnch. president of the First
National bunk, made a sfnsational state
ment Just before he left the witness stand
In the investigation this afternoon. Sen
ator SchmidVof the committee brought out
the matter by asking Mr. Hinch If he con
sidered it proper for a banker to use county
funds? President Hlnsch then asked per
mission to make a statement, which he did.
In effect, as follows:
Tf the bunks hnd not been thus favored
the ensuing financial condition would have
been disastrous for the community. You
know per cent of the business of the
community is transacted en pui:er or is
represented by puner, this lesves i per cent
of the business done In actual canh. Lock
tip fct.SCl.mo at a time in the county treas
urer a oftiee and the result would be that
every element of business in the city would
be paralyzed. It would flop the loans of
every bank In the city. So bankers feel
that In being permitted to use the public
funds they w.-re doing a good thing for the
public um well Such deposits In the banks
are not profitable to the bankers. We are,
under the law. compelled to reserve 'St per
cent of It under the national banking law.
This raised the coat of the entire deposit to
as high a fisure as we weie able to secure
for it. Those loans were subject to Instant
call for the use of municipalities which
were liable to call any time.
"You know ahere the Interest was
going?" asked Senator Schmidt.
"I did not. I gave that no attention."
"Would you have sent the Interest had
you known It went to the treasurer?" asked
Interest In f'aiuualaa Panda.
"I suppose he was entitled to it," said
President Hinsch, who further supple
mented his remarks as follows:
It is an open secret of years' duration
that the banks paid Interest on county
funds and this Interest, as the rumor had
It, went to campaign funds, and, gentle
men, let me say that If you tie up the tax
